As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only. Moving forward, myibi is our community platform to learn, share, and collaborate. We have the same Focal Point forum categories in myibi, so you can continue to have all new conversations there. If you need access to myibi, contact us at email@example.com and provide your corporate email address, company, and name.

The second reason is that when WebFocus is on another computer we want to divide the work between WebFocus and the RDBMS. Pushing everything to the rdbms overloads it when 500 tasks are running simultaneously, so any load reduction is useful.
